Public discovery[ edit ] Inan asymmetric key cryptosystem was published by Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman who, influenced by Ralph Merkle 's work on public key distribution, disclosed Key person method of public key agreement. This method of key exchange, which uses exponentiation in a finite Key personcame to be known as Diffie—Hellman key exchange.
This was the first published practical method for establishing a shared secret-key over an authenticated but not confidential communications channel without using a prior shared secret. Merkle's "public key-agreement technique" became known as Merkle's Puzzlesand was invented in and published in The latter authors published their work inand the algorithm came to be known as RSAfrom their initials.
RSA uses exponentiation modulo a product of two very large primesto encrypt and decrypt, performing both public key encryption and public key digital signature.
Its security is connected to the extreme difficulty of factoring large integersa problem for which there is no known efficient general technique. InMichael O. Rabin published a related cryptosystem that is probably secure as long as the factorization of the public key remains difficult — it remains an assumption that RSA also enjoys this security.
Since the s, a large number and variety of encryption, digital signature, key agreement, and other techniques have been developed in the field of public key cryptography. The introduction of elliptic curve cryptography by Neal Koblitz and Victor Millerindependently and simultaneously in the mids, has yielded new public key algorithms based on the discrete logarithm problem.
Although mathematically more complex, elliptic curves provide smaller key sizes and faster operations for approximately equivalent estimated security. Typical use[ edit ] Public key cryptography is often used to secure electronic communication over an open networked environment such as the Internet, without relying on a hidden or covert channel, even for key exchange.
Open networked environments are susceptible to a variety of communication security problems, such as man-in-the-middle attacks and spoofs. Communication security typically includes requirements that the communication must not be readable during transit preserving confidentialitythe communication must not be modified during transit preserving the integrity of the communicationthe communication must originate from an identified party sender authenticityand the recipient must not be able to repudiate or deny receiving the communication.
Combining public key cryptography with an Enveloped Public Key Encryption EPKE  method, allows for the secure sending of a communication over an open networked environment. In other words, even if an adversary listens to an entire conversation including the key exchange, the adversary would not be able to interpret the conversation.
The distinguishing technique used in public key cryptography is the use of asymmetric key algorithms, where a key used by one party to perform encryption is not the same as the key used by another in decryption. Each user has a pair of cryptographic keys — a public encryption key and a private decryption key.
For example, a key pair used for digital signatures consists of a private signing key and a public verification key. The public key may be widely distributed, while the private key is known only to its proprietor. The keys are related mathematically, but the parameters are chosen so that calculating the private key from the public key is unfeasible.
In contrast, symmetric key algorithms use a single secret key, which must be shared and kept private by both the sender for encryption and the receiver for decryption. To use a symmetric encryption scheme, the sender and receiver must securely share a key in advance.
Because symmetric key algorithms are nearly always much less computationally intensive than asymmetric ones, it is common to exchange a key using a key-exchange algorithmthen transmit data using that key and a symmetric key algorithm.
Security[ edit ] Some encryption schemes can be proven secure on the basis of the presumed difficulty of a mathematical problem, such as factoring the product of two large primes or computing discrete logarithms.
Note that "secure" here has a precise mathematical meaning, and there are multiple different meaningful definitions of what it means for an encryption scheme to be "secure".
The "right" definition depends on the context in which the scheme will be deployed. The most obvious application of a public key encryption system is confidentiality — a message that a sender encrypts using the recipient's public key can be decrypted only by the recipient's paired private key.
This assumes, of course, that no flaw is discovered in the basic algorithm used. Another application in public key cryptography is the digital signature. Digital signature schemes can be used for sender authentication and non-repudiation. The sender computes a digital signature for the message to be sent, then sends the signature together with the message to the intended receiver.
Digital signature schemes have the property that signatures can be computed only with the knowledge of the correct private key. To verify that a message has been signed by a user and has not been modified, the receiver needs to know only the corresponding public key.
In some cases e.
In other cases e. To achieve both authentication and confidentiality, the sender should include the recipient's name in the message, sign it using his private key, and then encrypt both the message and the signature using the recipient's public key.
These characteristics can be used to construct many other sometimes surprising cryptographic protocols and applications, such as digital cashpassword-authenticated key agreementmulti-party key agreement, time-stamping servicesnon-repudiation protocols, etc. Practical considerations[ edit ] Enveloped Public Key Encryption[ edit ] Enveloped Public Key Encryption EPKE is the method of applying public key cryptography and ensuring that an electronic communication is transmitted confidentially, has the contents of the communication protected against being modified communication integrity and cannot be denied from having been sent non-repudiation.

An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs).Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted.
